How Claiming Directory Listings Can Help Your Company?

Directory Listings

Using online properties to effectively develop a stellar digital reputation is a marathon, not a sprint. Getting your house in order (your website, your social media accounts and online business directory listings) is a good place to start. Having a consistent and diverse reputation management plan will keep your business and brand on topic and on the positive side of your audience.  

However, ending there is not going to help you create the lead generation that will help you to grow your online presence. The key to marketing success is constantly updating, adapting, measuring, analyzing and tweaking your strategy to better optimize your results. 

While SEO is in a constant state of flex, it is something you cannot afford to overlook. There is a lot of factors to consider well before you claim your share of the marketplace. First, let’s discuss directory listings and how they play a big part of getting your business a great online presence. 

Directory Listings

If you want your company to rise in rankings on search engine results pages, take the time to claim your business directories as soon as possible. Think of it as yellow pages in a phone book. You want potential customers to know everything about your business in the most accessible way to get more leads. That’s why online directories are so important for your business.  

Things like your company address, phone number, email address and website link should be consistent and updated regularly so any potential customer or client can find your business right away. Some popular websites to list your company information include Google My Business, Manta, Yellow Pages, Yelp, Facebook, Bing Places and Better Business Bureau. 

Taking the time to claim your local business directory listings comes with many more benefits for your company. Besides helping your customers find you, you are also able to reach more people who are looking for specific services. How’s that for a FREE advertising opportunity? Yes, you read it right FREE, business directories are one of the most cost-effective marketing tools ever.

Google My Business Service Feature

Are You Using Google My Business Service Area Feature?

Google My Business Service Feature

Looking to find more customers for your service-area business? Google is making it easier now for businesses that service a particular area to get discovered by consumers searching for services like theirs online in Google Maps and Search. 

Does your business serve customers within a specific service area? If the answer is yes, you should go ahead and update your Google My Business listing asap. Listing your service area helps let customers know where you’ll go to visit or deliver to them. 

Here’s who should be using the Google My Business Service Area feature: 

  • A business that visits or delivers to customers, but doesn’t serve customers at its business address (e.g. a cleaning service). 
  • A business that serves customers at its business address, but also visits or delivers to customers (e.g. a restaurant that also delivers food). 

How it works? 

You can set your service area based on a specific city, postal code, or other areas that you serve. However, it’s important to note that you can no longer set your service area as a distance (mile radius) around your business. If you previously did so, you won’t be able to edit it now. Instead, you’ll need to specify your service area by city, postal code, or other areas. 

Google My Business service area

 

Keep in mind the following when updating your Google My Business Listing: 

  • If you don’t serve customers at your business address, leave the address field blank and only enter your service area. 
  • If you serve customers at your business address but also have a service area, enter both your address and service area.

Ways to Improve Your Digital Marketing Strategy and Reach New Customers

Did you know that every day Google notes about 40,000 search queries per second? According to another statistic, active shoppers do a least one search a day. This means customers these days are curious and research driven.

How to Improve Your Digital Marketing Strategy to Reach New Customers

 

  • Immediacy trumps loyalty – Your business has to be right there when potential customers are looking for something.  Research shows that searches “today, tonight, open now” are becoming more popular every day.
  • Near me searches tripled since 2015. Is your business Google listing up to date?

  • Customers are quick to judge a business online if they don’t have a good experience right away. Research shows you only have 3 seconds to make a good impression online!
  • Customers these days are impatient and they want to access everything right away. If they can’t find your contact information with one click, you may be losing that sale. Make sure your website is mobile friendly and easy to navigate to avoid any confusion.
  • Customers are more demanding, informed and aware. Therefore, you have to tailor your strategy to market each customer individually.
  • Mobile strategy is a must – Google is recording more mobile than desktop searches every day. Did you know an average consumer looks at his/her phone about 70 times a day? Mobile phone changed how we interact with the world, so make sure you include a voice search and mobile-friendly website in your business digital marketing strategy.

Here Are Our 2019 Digital Marketing Predictions

Can you believe it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2018? As we close in the fourth quarter, we can’t help but reflect on this part year.

2019 digital marketing trends to watch out for: 

 

  1.  Optimize Content for Voice Search – Now is the time to brainstorm new keyword strategies that will cater to all those customers who love using the latest smart technologies (Alexa, Siri) in their search queries.
  2. Diversify Your Content Strategy – In the past year, digital creators and marketers focused more on long-form content (+2,000 words) to rank higher in search. However, it’s been proven that blogs or articles don’t have to be long to be considered valuable. That’s why it’s good to focus on both short and long-form pieces in the new year, so you can cater to those with shorter attention spans as well.
  3. Consider Influencer Marketing – This form of marketing/ advertising will only continue to grow in the next year. Partnering with influencers and content creators to promote your products or build brand awareness is an excellent and effective way to organically reach more valuable customers.
  4. Produce More Video Content – Video is already getting a boost in search from all voice queries, so don’t neglect it in 2019. Producing video content is a great way to liven up your marketing strategy!
  5. Invest in Chatbots – According to Forbes, research “predicts that the chatbot industry will grow significantly as enterprises are enabled to substantially reduce operating costs”.

Why Should You Outsource Digital Marketing Services?

outsource digital marketing

We live in a fast-paced world, when nearly every piece of information needs to be delivered right away. These days we rely on technology so much that being constantly connected to social media became a bit of a job. Not to mention, there’s a sense of responsibility to be present online whether you know digital marketing or not!

So how are small business owners who deal with daunting day to day operations of running a business supposed to manage it all? Well, they don’t have to. That’s when you outsource digital marketing services!

You see, a digital marketing team you hire will not only stay abreast of all new digital marketing tactics, but they will also know how to help your business adapt to the changes. Trust us, nothing ever stays the same in the digital world! Just in the last year, Google Chrome made a number of changes to their security requirements, Facebook announced a new “community commitment” and Instagram updated their algorithm every few months. Is your business able to keep up with all the updates without the expert knowledge of how to navigate this digital space?

outsourcing digital marketing

WSI experts said it best: When it comes down to it, working with an agency is better than going it alone – even if you’re a solopreneur – because there is so much to learn about the digital world. We say it all the time, but it’s tough to keep up with digital marketing trends, even for marketers and agencies. And we live this stuff, every single day!

When you work with an agency, not only do you solve the “time is money” problem and escape the sell-do loop, you also gain access to the knowledge of people and resources who can take you – and your business – to the next level. Gaining knowledge is power, and it’s also so much better than struggling by yourself.

Makes sense? Next time you worry about the numbers and not enough leads, do yourself a favor and think about outsourcing digital marketing experts! They will assess your online presence from every possible angle and come up with a solution and marketing strategy that’s catered to your needs! They will also make advertising for your industry simple and straightforward.
